Posted by doomdy: , DoNs are the same as a sat, same payout 1 to 5, so yes play2survive beats play2win here.

I was thinking thread was about cash games for first but it's changing to tournaments etc.... In tournaments there is no way I would fold KK even on bubble... especially on Bbl! When bullies push nearly any2. You want your chips to get involved so you can double up. You play tournaments for win not for last paid place.
And about Rush Poker Cash game. Folding KK is sometimes just easy ^^
I have folded KK pre flop, on more than one occasion.
There have to be certain circumstances that would stop me calling.
1) Its getting close to the money 2) My opponent has me covered and would stop me cashing if I lose 3) I have more than 20 BBs and therefore a double up isnt essential.
If all the the above apply then I would consider folding KK.
In fact, I would go one further, I was in an MTT with 30 to go till the money, I was just above the bubble spot and I picked up AA. The player UTG went all in, two players then called his all in. The biggest stack on the table shoved all his chips in and it came round to me. Up against 4 players with AA, I folded......
Sure enough the biggest stack had KK and he hit quads. Had I called I would have lost everything. As it was I folded AA pre flop and went on to final table the game, finishing 4th for $856....
Anyone who says you should never fold KK pre flop is an idiot. If there are 4 players in the hand and you have KK you will lose more times than you win...

The most sensible reply on this thread.
If three players are all in before you and your entire tournament life is on the line, then a case can be made for folding even if you have AA...
Posted by magatt966: there is another recent thread dealing about the opportunity to play mediocre hands and it seems (at least I think so) there are some situations it could be doable....
...and here we are discussing about folding best hands....
I will never do it in rush poker, sometimes I do when playing Dons...but I have to say DoNs are not true poker
Rush Poker isn't true poker either.. In fact its the furthest thing you can get from Poker
